public folders - folder assistant or event sink

Post by Gran » Tue, 24 Feb 2004 06:45:00


Weve got Exchange 2003 with most of our clients using Outlook 2003 or 2000.
We have kept the Exchange 5,5 server on the domain purely because we have a
newsletter public (folder which receives newsletters we have subscribed to
over on the internet), and which uses an agent script that forwards these
mails to different people and public sub folders.

We cannot get rid of the exchange 5,5 server until we figure a way to
forward these emails. I have tried using the Folder assistant to assign a
rule which forwards the emails but they dont seem to be working, all the
newsletters are just sitting in the folder, the rules dont look like theyre
firing.

Another option is to write an event sink. If anyone has done an event sink
or has some example code that I could look at that would be a great help.
The Exchange SDK doesnt show what the methods expose - so I woiuld need to
install a 3rd Exchange server with VB6 to debug what is going on. We really
need to get this 5,5 Exchange server out of the domain and this event sink
is going to take time to do.

So if anyone knows why these rules arent firing (Maybe they are firing on
the Exchange 5,5 server which cant process them?) or has an example event
sink - I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Grant

Have a search at cdolive.com and slipstick.com ... there may be some
suggestions there.

Might also try to setup a DL for each newsletter and give it the subscribed
e-mail address. DLs can contain users as well as Mail-Enabled Public
Folders. I can't tell if you actually filtering the mail from the folder or
just sending all of it. If its all then I'd avoid the whole event sink /
scripting thing.

o how do I go about doing this? All I want to do is forward the mail to
certain users (no need to filter) and also a public folder. If I setup a DL
how do I get it to forward the mail to the relevant locations without seting
up a rule?

ou don't worrying about it "forwarding".

Basically you've subscribed to a newsletter with some e-mail address. Give
that to the DL. Then add the members you want to get the stuff - this
includes mail-enabled folders as well as users with mailboxes.
